The Manchurian Candidate @ Regent Square

Showtime at 8 pm. Meet in lobby by 7:50.

Chillingly suspenseful and, at times, perversely funny this Cold War thriller was also prophetic. Withheld from distribution by star Frank Sinatra for 25 years after President Kennedy's assassination – it foreshadows, among other things, the growth of conspiracy theories. When a former infantryman is haunted by nightmares he begins to believe he was brainwashed in the war. Angela Lansbury plays an evil, power hungry mother – one of the all-time great movie villains. (John Frankenheimer; 1962; 129 min)

    An interesting film, if at times a bit 'cheesy.' Great performances by Laurence Harvey, Frank Sinatra, and especially Angela Lansbury.

    I could definitely go for a Belgian beer & pulled pork sandwich at D's.

    I like the after movie id.
    Regrets that 'Wild Beasts' trampled over @ Golden Globes!

    Anyone up for a beer after the movie? Or dinner across the street before the movie?

      Let me know if we will meet before, as I might be driving in from Waynesburg.

      Depending on if anyone else responds - I'd probably prefer getting a bite/drink afterwards, might be easier timing-wise.
